Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I am a writer and have had short stories and poetry published in journals and magazines in Kentucky and Los Angeles. My original play was produced to critical acclaim and rave reviews when it was staged at the Lost Studio in Hollywood. My first novel June Bug Versus Hurricane will be submitted to publishers by my agent this fall. I have been an avid reader ever since I was a child and love literature more than I can describe! I would love the opportunity to share my love of the English language with others.

Film

I have twenty years experience as an actress and producer. I was based in Los Angeles for the past two decades and did films such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas with Johhnny Depp, Terry Gilliam director, Dead Husbands filmed in Toronto with John Ritter. I produced award winning Independent Film Lost in the Pershing Point Hotel, winner of best script Los Angeles Independent Film Festival and Best Indy Film New York Independent Film Festival. I have written a screenplay with Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook, Alpha Dog) that is based on my book. The film is in development to be shot on location in Las Vegas and Kentucky.

Public Speaking

I have a B.A. in Theatre as well as a Masters in Theatre from the University of Kentucky. With these years of training the stage has become a second home. I have held many seminars on playwriting and spoken to large audiences about the craft of acting. As a producer of Independent Film in Hollywood, I have traveled to Film Festivals around the country and spoke on panels discussing film. I am confident with my background that I can tutor on public speaking, vocal techniques and holding an audience's attention by being both to the point and poignant, entertaining and knowledgeable in whatever subject you are speaking to the public about.

Theater

I have worked in the Theatre for the last 25 years. I received a BA in theatre from the University of Kentucky and just returned to graduate school and received a Masters in Theatre from the University of Kentucky in 2012. I studied theatre at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California as well as Kings College in London. I have acted in countless plays and received a Best Actress Dramalogue Award for playing Chrissie in David Rabe's In the Boom Boom Room in Los Angeles. I also have produced many critically acclaimed and award winning plays and a very successful rock opera. I wrote and produced my own play and it had a wonderful run at the Lost Studio on La Brea, Hollywood, CA. I am currently writing a new play and plan on staging it soon.
